Snow in Houston, Texas? Records and Wrecks in a "Wonder-land"


by Jesse Muhammad

These are real photos, not Photoshop! On December 4, 2009, snow fell on the city of Houston, Texas. I already know readers in cities where this is the norm is laughing at us but this is Texas.

Snow is unusual for us.

According to Channel 11 morning news on December 5, historically this is the earliest date in a year that Houston has ever received snow. The winter season has not officially started. This is also the first time that the city has received snow in back to back years. Multiple crashes occurred overnight due to the icy streets. Many schools let out early yesterday and several roads were closed.

Here are a few more pics I took in the Texas "Wonder-Land". The sun is melting it away as we Tweet...I mean speak. (smile)
